TRUMP UNDER INVESTIGATION! Report: FBI Opens Obstruction Of Justice Probe, Trump Fires Back On Twitter

The Washington Post, citing unnamed officials, has reported that Donald Trump is being investigated by special counsel Robert Mueller for obstruction of justice.

Mueller is investigating alleged Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

You'll remember that last week Former FBI Director James Comey told Congress that he believed he was fired by Trump to undermine the agency’s Russia probe.

It seems to have done just the opposite as the obstruction of justice investigation was apparently opened up the day after Trump fired Comey.

Several legal experts have said that Comey’s testimony that Trump expected loyalty and told Comey he hoped he could drop an investigation of a former top aide could bolster obstruction of justice allegations against Trump.

In addition to the bombshell news of the investigation into Trump the Washington Post reported that Dan Coats, the director of national intelligence, Mike Rogers, the head of the National Security Agency, and Richard Ledgett, the former deputy director at the NSA, had agreed to be interviewed by Mueller’s investigators as early as this week.

Trump’s legal team quickly denounced the reports as a spokesman for Trump’s legal team, Mark Corallo, said...

The FBI leak of information regarding the President is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal,

Trump of course took to Twitter to voice his displeasure...

After Comey’s testimony, Trump also took to twitter to claim he felt "Totally vindicated" because he claimed that the former FBI director had told him on three occasions that he was not under investigation.

It seems that Trump's declaration was just a wee bit premature.
